(p.186) Chapter Eight The Rise and Evolution of Fisheries Certification
Constructing Private Governance

Graeme Auld

Yale University Press

This chapter traces the origins of certification programs in the fisheries sector and how the process was influenced by the Marine Stewardship Council's (MSC) institutional design. It discusses the three separate paths through which information relating to fisheries certification and labeling was transmitted: the organic certifiers' application of the ideas of organic husbandry to the burgeoning fish farming industry; the World Wide Fund for Nature's attempt to replicate in fisheries its experience with the Forest Stewardship Council; and the response of producers in North America to building campaigns directed at fisheries. It also examines the MSC's focus on ocean capture and environmental considerations.
